The traditional style of wine, as it once was.

The company is certified organic by ICEA both for the vineyards and for the olive grove.If for many the BIO is a fashion, for us it is a creed.

A young company that loves tradition.

The “Paride D’Angelo” Agricultural Company is located in Pianella, a territory nestled between Maiella, Gran Sasso and the Adriatic Sea. Unique and enchanting place, completely exposed to the South, always sunny from sunrise to sunset. Inside the company we find a half-moon of natural land about 100 meters long and 20 meters high, visible from all points of the country.

The winery for its philosophy is a modern and technological open space where the visitor can tangibly realize what the company’s processing and production processes are.

The company boasts young vines planted by a few years but with selected clones of Montepulciano D’Abruzzo, old vines with low production per hectare, both the classic Abruzzese pergola (marquee) and the new rows pruned to Guyot mono.
Among the old vines there is one of 44 years, the real Trebbiano d’Abruzzo and two selection of vines of Montepulciano D’Abruzzo.

The first grape variety belongs to a selection planted 50 years ago in the upper part of the company, has among its features a bunch a little ‘bigger and a gradation not too high even in good years, the skin is very thick and with a color point high.

The second vine, instead, of about 38 years Montepulciano D’Abruzzo is nestled in the center of the company, produces a small cluster with high gradation, medium / thick peel with a very high color point.

In the company we also find 4000 olive Apropino Pescarese Dop olive plants, divided by 80% of Dritta, 10% of Leccino and 10% Toccolana.

Our wines have a traditional style “the wine as it once was”, working with spontaneous fermentations without the addition of yeasts and with a low content of sulphites and in particular vintages even with zero sulphites.
We only work three wines: Trebbiano D’Abruzzo, Cerasuolo D’Abruzzo and Montepulciano D’Abruzzo.

Trebbiano D’Abruzzo with spontaneous fermentation, maintained around 15/20 days on the skins, varies according to the vintage, once removed the skins remains in contact with the lees for months before being decanted and unfiltered.

Cerasuolo D’Abruzzo, said by our heirs “the wine of the night”, because we collect the grapes during the day, we vinify and leave it with the skins for the whole night before separating it, it is a processing method called “Salasso” with temperature controlled around 23 degrees.

Montepulciano D’Abruzzo with spontaneous fermentation without addition of yeasts, selections made in the vineyard picking only the most beautiful and uniform bunches from the point of view of color and that have not suffered problems like dots of powdery mildew and downy mildew. Once the wine is ready, we divide the mass into two parts, one part is left to refine it in cement and the other part always by decanting is poured and bottled.

If for many the BIO is a fashion, for us it is a creed. What does it mean?

Inside the company we use only copper and sulfur for the fight against peronospora and oidium, in limited quantities selecting low-dose branches with percentages from 5% to 7% in non-rainy moments and with little humidity and 23% copper in periods of rain and high humidity. But above all we monitor the company with weather turrets in order to be more careful in the treatments.

To have a good effectiveness of the products used and to ensure the cluster an excellent airing and exposure to the sun, we work mainly manually, going 4 times during the summer in the vineyard for the green pruning.
We adopt non-working soil, using only the flail mower so as not to break the capillaries in the ground, and we use a natural organic fertilizer both with legumes of potassium, phosphorus and magnesium rich in legumes, selected natural stews in rich northern Italian stalls of nitrogen.
